It's directed by Guy Ritchie. It'll be a dismal flop.

Doubtful. These Disney remakes do well regardless of who's directing.

A "Live-Action" picture with a 99% CGI trailer. OK then.

Ominous music? Check.
Variation on the least-remembered melody from the original? Check.
Gloomy, apocalyptic superhero-movie mood? Check.
Crumbly, incomprehensible voice acting? Check.
Shiny CGI? Check.
Briefest shot possible of any living human being but only in the last few seconds? Check.
This looks fucking horrible.

Why call it live action movie when most of it is CGI anyway? I mean I bet even the actors are CGI'd to death to make them look like they fit in that CGI world.

They are doing "live action" Lion King that will be all CGI, these movies let Disney repackage the same story and make a shit ton of money. They aren't going to stop.

Can you imagine how exquisitely PC it must be, because it’s set in a non western culture and when formerly told featured all sorts of stereotypes about middle eastern civilization?
Meanwhile in Turkey movies are being made about Americans being organ stealing vampires and they are #1 at the box office.

It will probably be fun popcorn movie fare. It will look great and we all know the story. I think the lead is actually a good fit for the scrappy urchin role.

It's weird how Disney is releasing Dumbo, Aladdin and The Lion King in a space of four months. I hope the public overdoses on these crappy films (like they did on Star Wars) and at least one of them flops.
|by Anonymous||reply 23||10/12/2018|
Dumbo's the highest risk. Aladdin's gonna be fine and The Lion King will likely be a big fat hit. Imagine the press on that thing with Donald Glover and Beyonce out and about.

Dumbo is a Tim Burton movie. He had great success with Alice in Wonderland. I wonder if that will be enough to secure a big and successful blockbuster ticket sale hit for at least the first weekend making it profitable?

There's just as much information in this teaser as the beauty and the beast teaser trailer, which was all cgi tracking to a rose. This one has a person. Just imitating the marketing of an extremely successful film. Nothing original.

Aladdin (Arabic: علاء الدين) is a folk tale of Middle Eastern origin. It is one of the tales in The Book of One Thousand and One Nights ("The Arabian Nights"), and one of the best known—but it was not part of the original Arabic text, being added in the 18th century by Frenchman Antoine Galland, who attributed the tale to Syrian storyteller Youhenna Diab.
Since it first appeared in the early 18th century "Aladdin and the Magic Lamp" has been one of the best known and most retold of all fairy stories.
|by Anonymous||reply 42||10/13/2018|
R40 Mustapha is an Arabic name too
|by Anonymous||reply 43||10/13/2018|
*tailor, not sailor
the beginning of the tale from Burton's translation of Arabian Nights:
"IT hath reached me, O King of the Age, that there dwelt in a city of the cities of China a man which was a tailor, withal a pauper, and he had one son, Aladdin hight. Now this boy had been from his babyhood a ne'er-do-well, a scapegrace. And when he reached his tenth year, his father inclined to teach him his own trade, and, for that he was overindigent to expend money upon his learning other work or craft or apprenticeship, he took the lad into his shop that he might be taught tailoring. But, as Aladdin was a scapegrace and a ne'er-do-well and wont to play at all times with the gutter boys of the quarter, he would not sit in the shop for a single day. Nay, he would await his father's leaving it for some purpose, such as to meet a creditor, when he would run off at once and fare forth to the gardens with the other scapegraces and low companions, his fellows. Such was his case- counsel and castigation were of no avail, nor would he obey either parent in aught or learn any trade. And presently, for his sadness and, sorrowing because of his son's vicious indolence, the tailor sickened and died.

Scheherazade was thinking about saving her own life! She hadn't thought too much about geography when she placed Aladdin and Mustapha in the middle of China

At one of point of the tale in Arabian Nights, Aladdin asks to go back to China and the whole Sultan palace and everyone in it is transported from Morocco to China
I mean, it doesn't have to make sense. It is a story about a magical lamp afterall

It's so fucking lazy of Disney to keep remaking their own cartoons as live action films. I remember when they used to get flack for churning out low-budget direct-to-DVD sequels, but even THEY more originality in them than these remakes.
